on the government, you know, we just had to ween them off of that because they didn't want to pay income tax. now, a guy with a tax account in the cayman islands is attacking other people for not wanting to -- i mean, you got to give him credit. >> bill clinton, back in new hampshire today, for the president. meanwhile, mitt romney is narrowing president obama's lead in our latest nbc news/"wall street journal" national poll but the battleground states show he has a difficult path to 270. tonight is his biggest chance to change the momentum of the campaign. what is his game plan? former senator jim talent a romney campaign senior adviser and joins me now in denver. thank you very much. >> thank you, andrea. >> what's the mood inside mitt romney's debate preps? >> oh, i think he's working hard and eager to get out there and do it. i imagine they both are. you prepare and prepare and want to go out and debate and he's going to present the choice before the american people. we can go on the way we are, which is not all that viable or we can have a change of policies and get the economy moving and th
care, one on governing and one on the state of government. the role of government, i should say. now, both candidates will be standing at podiums. no strict time limits. each candidate will have two minutes to answer that question and then the rest of the segment will be an open discussion about the topic at hand. so that is how the debate is going to do. aides with the obama campaign say his goal is to deliver his message in a crisp and clear manner. to not seem too long winded as sometimes he has in the past. so that's really his goal and also to make the case about why he thinks he can do a better job in these next four year of turning the economy around and to really give people specifics. as i said, the first lady will be there tonight. it is their 20th anniversary. no time to really celebrate tonight. they say they will do that this weekend. >> quite a way to celebrate. thanks so much. we head tout peter alexander in denver, where mitt romney has been for several days now prepping for the debate this evening. >> you had plenty of sports metaphors in that introduction. we'll giv
15-minute segments. the first three on the economy. then healthcare. then the role of government. and finally governing. president obama will go first. won the coin toss. governor romney will have the last word. organizers say they decided that and today we got a preview of the game plan from both sides here on fox news channel. starting with the president's campaign. >> well, we're overcoming what was the worst recession since the great depression. we have made a lot of progress. we are losing 800,000 jobs a month. obviously we have created 5 million jobs. he will talk about the progress we have made and lay out a road map to create good paying sustainable jobs for the middle class. >> we have seen record unemployment for 43 consecutive months. 47 million americans on food stamps. one in six in poverty. if that's progress i hate to see what the next four years look like. >> shepard: well, as i mentioned, the president and governor romney will probably be speaking to the biggest tv audience of the campaign. four years ago on this night, 52 million americans watched the first pres
want to hang around and be dependent on the government and we have to wean him off of that because we don't want to pay income tax. now, the guy with a tax account in the cayman islands attacking people -- you've got to give him credit, like i said -- >> he's calling people a bunch of bums for people that pay taxes and then wait a minute, look at your tax account. it's hard to respond to and clinton makes it fun, too. >> the masterful speech at the democratic convention, in new hampshire, one of the key swing states, whenever you can laugh a little bit about your opponent, usually scoring good points on him. i do think that clearly mitt romney has not gotten out from the 47% comment. he's going to be confronted with it tonight. what's he going to say. how he's going to respond? how's he going to look at the approxima president and look at the cameras and say what he meant to say versus what he said? it's such a constricted and view of the country and so many voters are in fact republican voters and the reason that don't pay income taxes is because of republican policies. you're going
for america, two conflicting views of government, a clash of ideas about the kind of democracy we want. it could hardly be a more stark choice for the country. but this is also personal it's about two men and who are and how they will connect with the american people. no doubt about it, this is a big night. join me now, cynthia tucker and erin mcpike who covers the campaign for real clear politics. thank you both for coming on the show. >> thank you. >> thanks for having me. >> erin, let me go to you first. mitt romney is behind. what does he need to cover up? what does he need to do tonight? >> he needs to show, especially middle class voters, that he has a plan. we've already heard from the obama campaign that the president is likely to push mitt romney on specifics and in the past couple of days he has telegraphed that we might see more specifics like immigration, especially tax policy. that's what we're going to be hearing more from him tonight, some specifics so that when a president bushes him, he's ready. >> now, one of the big gaffes or big mistakes, sin nilla, that we've seen
to determine how we change our behavior. >> most agree that the problems are larger than any one government agency. they believe accountability starts with the ones affected the most. >> unless we have the parent and child participation, especially those impacted by the system, we do not see real change. we can have a public conversation, which is nice, but it is not moving toward change because we do not have that use the engagement. >> i think more can be done in communities to show the positive, the positive aspects so we can start doing positive things to up with each other. >> this is the second year of the conference put on by the office of crime control and prevention. >> a lot of work to do. >> in the. thank you. >> president barack obama in gop -- and gop challenger mitt romney will face off in two hours. it is likely the biggest night of the campaign so far. the president gets the first question in a loosely- structured format. weeks of prep are coming down to this with a lot on the line for both candidates. we are live in denver to talk about some of the key talking points tonigh
government officials have confirmed the committee that prior to the september 11 attacks, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the letter goes on to detail a series of attacks and incidents in libya that formed the basis for those calls for more security resources, resources that the letter alleges were denied by officials in washington. we'll have more on that angle shortly. first, arwa damon joins me. she's back from libya and joins me here in new york. very good to see you safe and sound. walk me back. you were at the site three days after the attack. you have some still photographs that have never been seen before. describe what we see. >> well, the first in these photographs is basically the exterior of the main building at the compound itself. this is the building where the ambassador resided, and the right hand portion of the building is where the so-called safe room was supposed to be. as you can see, the burning all occurred inside the building itself. >> it doesn't look very touched on the outside. >> no. very much a lot of the dama
that the next american president will be governing a shrinking middle class. people in that income range had a message for the president that transcended political ideology. the percentage of americans that fit into the middle income category was exacerbated in the 2000's as median family income shrunk. in colorado, where it started to raise in 2007, its stubbornly hung around 8% for the last year. it is the slower rate compared to household population overall. other articles look at the impact of the latino vote in colorado. let's hear what you have to say. bob is in new york city on the democratic line. caller: i have two questions for the candidates. why, in this day and age, are women's reproductive rights even being called up? are they aware that in this century, at this late date -- why are we going back and rehashing this? an issue that has been dealt with and should not even be on the table? also, i would want to know possibly, and i will vote for the president, and from him i would want to know why -- i thought that his calling when he came to office was to get on top of wall street
